The Deni Rovers thirds are primed for a top-of-the-table clash with Strathmerton this Saturday after disposing of Jerilderie at the weekend.
The visiting Roos led at every break to beat the higher-placed Demons, all but locking in a top-three finish with two games remaining.
Liam Zeschke, Braden Leech and Jack Hope led the way for the Roos, while Logan Ives, Dylan East and Jayme Glanvill (three goals) were the other big contributors.
The Rovers fourths remain undefeated following a clinical 10.12 (72) to 1.0 (6) win over the Demons.
League leading goalkicker Blair Sartore (two goals), Jason Higgins and smooth mover Nick Hay were the Roos’ best, with crafty forward Reece Hussey bobbing up for three majors.
Blighty’s thirds suffered a big loss to Strathmerton, but the Redeyes fourths forged a remarkable draw with last year’s grand finalists.
Adrian Scott Laverty, Robert Wilson and Jake Loader got the nod as Blighty’s best in what was an upset result against the finals-bound Bulldogs, 2.6 (18) to 2.6 (18).
In the Murray Football League, the Rams thirds came from behind in the last quarter to pinch a 7.2 (44) to 6.8 (44) draw with Echuca United.
The Rams, higher than Echuca on the ladder, were best served by ruckmen Bryce Scoullar (two goals) and Tjunda Keefe-Jones, with midfielders Liam Pitts and Jonty Tubb also impressive.
Despite losing by 26 points, the Rams fourths performed well against the Eagles and were competitive until the final siren.
The Eagles won by 15 goals when the two met in round three.
Better players were Jordon Amor, Ryan MacDonald, Sam Willoughby, Cooper Wallace and Jack Gardam.
